Maiasaura-Mother nature Wrath
TheMystiXCuve posted a suggestion in Creature submission archiveIt’s history: The Maiasaura that lived in the area currently covered by the state of Montana and the province of Alberta, Canada in the Upper Cretaceous Period (mid to late Campanian), about 76.7 million years ago the Maia was large hadrosaurs, at a maximum known length of about 9 metres (30 ft) They had a flat beak typical of hadrosaurids, and thick noses. They had a small, spiky crest in front of the eyes. This crest may have been used in headbutting contests between males during the breeding season. Its body mass is measured approximately up to 4 metric tons (4.4 short tons). Maiasaura were herbivorous. They were capable of walking both on two (bipedal) or four (quadrupedal) legs. Studies of the stress patterns of healed bones show that young juveniles under four years old walked mainly bipedal, switching to a mainly quadrupedal style of walking when they grew larger. Maiasaura, like most other hadrosaurs, possessed little in the way of obvious weaponry, though likely could defend themselves with kicks, stomps, or their muscular tails. It is likely that they primarily resorted to fleeing in the face of danger, using the vast sizes of their herds to be less likely to be targeted. Ark gameplay: Wild: Now you must wonder how it would work in game, First of The Maia would as big as Rex but smaller then a Giga the Maia would be a Fearsome creature in the wild due to its livening nature it’s been documented that these giant adopted many stray animals such as baby Raptors to even Gigas, and in my eyes i say she earned the name the Capybara of the Arks and many of those baby creatures grew up to be very loyal towards them and in some case they protected her from other creatures and Player, this mother of a beast is seen to be guarded by mostly 5 Raptors but if she low (around 1 hp there would be a 1 out of 100 percent chance a giga would spawn and this giga would be in permanent Rage mode Hellbent of protecting her, if near her nest her and her minions (raptors) would attempt to to hunt you down and chase you far away from her nest. Taming process: It’s recommended you wear a full Ghillie suit and a bunch of Bug repellent to prevent her from finding you and you need to approach her nest slowly, if her nest is at warm temperatures drop some mejoberries in the nest then move away from the nest slowly, once she gets near the nest she will start to eat the berry’s beginning the taming process make sure you keep the ghillie and bug repellent on the whole time to prevent her from Attacking you, once her taming meter hits 50 percent you may approach her and help her look after her baby’s the raptors will also temporarily be tamed allowing to ride them with out a saddle but you can equip a saddle or tame them, once Tame the raptors will remains peaceful. Abilitys: The Maia has a plethora of Abilities these include: Leftclick/L1- Mothers Cry: When activated she can Call in 5 Raptors to help defend her they are max level and have the mate boost activated in rare case even Deinonychus can Spawn aswell, when she at 1 hp a Raged tamed giga would spawn and help her making her a well beefed up tame, if she in water and used this ability instead of raptor she would spawn a swarm of Max level Mega piranha up to 13 of them and if she at 1 hp she can spawn a mosa to protect her, the Creature she can summon are weaker in health for example the giga would have half the health of a Max Gigia but would have a imprinted damage boost same with the other dinos she can call one way to counter this would be to use rare flowers that would, so in pvp would effect them for around 15 seconds, also for players this ability would be on a 15 second cooldown. Rightclick/R2-Default Bite: when activated she can bite her opponent from the front and Kick from the back and from both sides but this ability is extremely weak as strong as a default bulbdog bite attack. X Attack/R1-Bipedal Mode: Just like a Iguanodon The Maia can switch from on all fours to on its hind legs and instead of a bite she Punches with her hooked claws she also use her tail to stunned her enemies approaching her form behind her. Passive-Mothers Wrath: When one of her baby’s are killed your Maia goes into a fit of rage like the Megatherium bug rage, she would get a 50% boost in her attacks and a reduction of Damage intake turning her into a beast on par with the Rex, She also uncontrolled and would throw you off her mount charging at any wild dinos, the best way to calm her down buy eating Rare flowers unlike most creatures rare flowers would remind her of her mother due to the smell, the Maia would also focus her rage on protecting you from the wild dinos who were enraged by the flowers. C Attack/L2-Creature detection: Just like the Parasaurolophus the Maia can Detect near by creature but it also can detect hp of the creatures around her. Saddie: When comes to the Maia Saddle The saddle just like the Maiwing has 10 pouches for baby dinos, and passively imprint your dinos while your not around. The saddle also has a tube coming from her mouth leading towards a large metal container on the back containing Milk (i have based the Maia milk on animals like the pigeon nutrient like milk it produced from a organ in its mouth) that connects to the pouches feeding the baby dinos, the saddle also carries a feeding bin small but can contain lost of food and can keep it cool, this allows the meat and berry’s to be kept cool and fresh. In conclusion: I think this tame would help relieve the player on imprinted and incubating the dinos while giving the ecosystem a unique symbiosis with the Maia and the other dinos while also giving a strong herbivores I do think there is room to improve and balance the Dino in-game to prevent it from being a op tame by giving it a unpredictable behaviour as you must have 7 baby dinos on you for the Maia to be useable as it won’t leave its baby’s behind I did note that if at a quarter health the baby dinos would be launched out of the saddle practically being food to the enemy activities the rage passive, hope you guys have a large supply of Rare flowers because your gonna need it Survivors.
